On 8 November 2014 at 19:00 Bozzini Quartet will present the Dutch premiere of nadir for string quartet and electronic sounds (2014) by Rozalie Hirs at November Music, Den Bosch, The Netherlands. In 2011 and 2012 the exquisite Bozzini Quartet, based in Montréal, toured Hirs’s first string quartet Zenit (2010) in Canada, The Netherlands, and Switzerland. The new work is scored for two violins, viola, cello, and electronic sounds. The sounds are synthesized from sinetones through additive synthesis. The other pieces on the programme are a new work by Frederik Neyrinck and Euler Lattice Spirals Scenery by Marc Sabat.
